First, Sheila and I are picking up meds tomorrow for my surgery early next month, plus delivering 2 paintings for a show sponsored by Creative Arts Society at Inspired Minds Art Center in Buda, Texas, just south of Austin – I hope to have pics and do a post this week ( reception is this Friday! – see pic below ) — 😊

Second, I’ve no idea how long this series on climate etc will run, but I need some kind of framework to place pieces of information together that are helping me understand the rapidly changing potentially deteriorating world we live in.

More often than not, piecing conflicting / merging / competing technologies and economic priorities together, is having the effect of raising questions in my mind, and apparently there’s no full-bodies consensus on a lot of this information, and won’t be, except – maybe – if we enter a truly recognizable catastrophic environmental situation where we might not survive.

That would be the worst condemnation of the human race imaginable.

Self destruction.

We don’t need that to happen. I don’t want that to happen. And I want to understand what it is we’re apparently not understanding – via our mass media and political / educational systems – that’s not allowing to grasp what may truly be at stake.

Tomorrow I’ll begin by trying to elaborate – as a starting point – from this article —
U.S. housing starts near 1-1/2-year low; factory output rebounds ( via Reuters & Fidelity )

As other articles I’ve reviewed, I have a lot of questions about what’s obviously a very complex subject, here treated in the above article, in about as fair as one article can do.

There’s contradictions and contra-flows of data explored and explained, but I’m at that tricky point where I’ve read just enough other articles to have learned more-other info which adds to or complicates points made here.

Luckily, we have a government that can and does respond as able, like in this post : As talks on Colorado River water falter, U.S. government imposes new restrictions

“The risks that we see to the system are based on the best available science that we’ve seen — and those risks have not changed. So today we’re starting the process and more information will follow as far as the actions we’ll take in that process,” said Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Camille Calimlim Touton.

As talks on Colorado River water falter, U.S. government imposes new restrictions, via the LA Times - https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2022-08-16/colorado-river-basin-states-fail-to-reach-drought-agreement
https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2022-08-16/colorado-river-basin-states-fail-to-reach-drought-agreement

There’s a reason the original 13 states had to band together, survival – and there’s plenty of reasons, even if from different causes, today – all coalescing under the same rubric : survival….

Meanwhile, I know of no other way or other choice, if I want to learn and understand things for myself, than to compare & contrast info and ideas from these vast arrays of articles on these everyday-life subjects : Inflation, the Economy, Climate, Clean Energy, Health.

And I had plenty of prior articles I was tempted to start from, and there’ll be more tomorrow.

But I have to start somewhere, and build from there…. 😊

Stay well everyone! Stay informed! ❤️

Voting, in our democracy, is the purest form of expression.
Dissenting, affirming, protesting – 
– all flow through the form of the ballot, not, the bullet…

*

Stay well everyone – for oneself, and for those who need us most..the children….
